  • I visited with my children a few years ago. I have been to many different zoos in the United States and this one in Daule is my favorite. We visited during a weekday as it was not busy and we had a tour guide explain each animal and their environment. It is a small zoo operating on a limited budget and it is not fancy, but you get very close to all of the animals (a much different experience from the zoos in the USA). I found it to be a great opportunity to learn about the animals native to the area and to see animals I would never see in North America. I hope they receive more money to expand their exhibits in the future. I look forward to returning again.
  • Very cool little zoo, you can get close to the animals
  • A good zoo with lions, tigers, camels, eagles, capibaras, crocodiles and peacocks. Guided tours available.
  • Nice zoo, good service
